Body Contouring High Definition

Body Contouring High Definition

High definition for the male body is obtained by performing liposuction with Vaser technology to reduce the most fat possible and allow the abdominal muscles, such as the obliques and the ones responsible for the six pack, to be revealed. This procedure can also be done in the shoulder and biceps area to better reveal those muscles. Fat that is removed can also be injected into the muscles to make them appear bigger. After surgery, the patient should wear a compression garment with foam underneath for one month or until all swelling is gone. This garment adds pressure to the high definition areas to ensure optimum healing and results.

What are the various procedures involved?

Vaser Liposuction The tumescent or superwet technique requires an infusion of saline solution, with added adrenaline and possibly lidocaine prior to the removal of excess fat. This technique helps to reduce bleeding and therefore bruising. It can also help reduce any discomfort or pain. Ultrasound assisted lipoplasty or UAL is where ultrasonic energy (via a high pitched sound wave) is used to liquefy excess fat prior to surgical suctioning. This method is primarily used for fat removal in hard-to-treat areas such as the chin, neck, cheeks, knees, calves, and ankles. It can also treat areas that have denser fat deposits with the ability to remove larger volumes of fat at one time. Ultrasonic liposuction is often performed in combination with tummy tuck or body contouring surgery.

What body contouring can and cannot do

High definition body contouring can help you the look stronger and more trim in the areas being treated. This procedure cannot make you lose weight or reduce your clothing size.

Together with Dr. Sigler, you will discuss the procedure and communicate your desires, your concerns and the results you hope to achieve. You may bring photographs to show Dr. Sigler examples of what you are looking for. Dr. Sigler will go over details of the procedure itself and the possible risks and complications as it pertains to any medical or structural issues she sees in your case. She will go over the type of anesthesia to be used. Once you have all your questions answered, you will both agree on a surgery plan and a proposed date. Photos are taken before and after the surgery in order to determine the amount of improvement.

Pre-op labwork should be done two weeks before the surgery with your own doctor, and then sent to Dr. Sigler. If you prefer Dr. Sigler to do the labwork, you will need to make arrangements prior to your surgery date. Required labwork includes:

CBC (Complete Blood Count), CMP (Chemical Metabolic Panel), PT (Prothrombin Time) and INR, PTT (Partial Thromboplastin Time) and any other labwork specific to your particular medical condition(s), such as a Thyroid Hormonal Panel.

Night before Surgery
Eat a lighter dinner and do not eat or drink past midnight.

Day of Surgery

You will meet with Dr. Sigler for your pre-op consultation, pre-op photos and markings on body or face, and for a final discussion about your procedure. Paperwork is completed and final prepping by your surgical team is carefully performed.

Post surgery care

5-7 days back to work 2 weeks regular activities 3-4 weeks regular exercise After surgery, a compression garment or elastic bandages with foam underneath may cover the treatment areas. These assist to control swelling and compress the skin to your new body contours. In addition, small temporary drains may be placed in incisions beneath the skin to remove excess fluid. Before you are released following surgery, you and an accompanying family member, friend or caregiver will be given specific instructions that may include: -How to care for the surgical site -Medications to take orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection -Specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health -When to follow up with your plastic surgeon. Follow all instructions carefully — this is important to the success of your outcome. In general, a return to light, normal activity is possible as soon as you feel ready and is encouraged to prevent blood clots and other complications. Initial wound healing may take from 5 to 10 days, meanwhile there could be some oozing of light red colored fluid from the wounds. Cover them with enough gauze’s or pads to avoid staining of your clothes or bedding. Stitches will be removed between one and two weeks. Attend follow up visits as scheduled. The use of compression garments is a must and should be worn during day and night, continuously, until one month after the surgery. You will be encouraged to control your weight, as significant gain weight can reverse your results. Results and outlook It may take several months for swelling to fully dissipate. As it does, your new contours and enhanced self-image should continue to develop. The fulfillment you feel from the initial results of liposuction should continue so long as you maintain your weight and practice a healthy lifestyle that includes eating well and regular physical activity.


"I have worked out since I was in my early twenties and I knew I had a six pack, but it didn’t show due to the fat I still had on my belly. Once that fat was removed with the High Def liposuction, I could see the results that I have accomplished on my muscles. Now my body looks great!!!" —Carlos, 34, New York
